I forgot to say I routered out a slot for the arbor as the 3/8”is a little to thick.
You can see the slot I’m talking about if you go to the link David Grimes posted.

I had made some inserts out of 1/4” plywood but the plywood shattered when trying to cut thin strips of red oak.The insert between the blade and fence flexed to much, not enough support because
the insert was to thin.

I had ordered 2 sheets of the plastic. The cost was about $48.00 with shipping.
You can work the plastic with woodworking tools.
So I ended up with 4 inserts for the R4512 and 2 inserts for my Ridgid miter saw.
And a 3/8”x3/4”x48” strip that I can use for jigs for the miter slot.

I still have to extend the slot on the zero clearance insert for the riving knife.
I think I can use my jigsaw for that.
